US Gambling Bill Tracker - Active And Pending Gambling Legislation In The USA

LawbookLooking back, 2018 has been a historic year for the legalization of gambling across the United States thanks in large part to the repeal of PASPA and states now having the power to freely decide on whether to legalize betting on sports.

As a result, many of the state legislative bodies have begun the process of presenting gambling bills for sports betting in addition to other gambling-related issues such as online gambling, casino licensing, lotteries, and many others.
